Pay TV customers on the DSTV service under Multichoice have another reason to smile after exchange rates were added to allow you pay the exact amount for the desired package.

Customers on MTN Mobile Money can simply enter this code *160*3*2*1# and the market rates will follow. Now that the service is invoiced in dollars, it is important to pay the exact amount as the dollar rate keeps on fluctuating every now and then.

Today, 9 Aug 2011 rates for the DSTV Bouquets were as follows:

  • Premium Ugx 209,450
  • Compact Plus Ugx 128,900
  • Compact Ugx 75,200
  • Family: 53,700
  • Access Ugx 26, 500
  • Premium +Xtraview/ Dual: 236,300/-

The beauty with Mobile Money is that the moment you call the call centre and you notify them of the payment, the amount will be visible on your account at the time of the call.

Initially, if you had made a payment from say Shell Select, you could then call the support team through the call centre, who could then connect you for at least two days before the accounts department eventually clears you.

This latest development will certainly save customers a lot of time and money that they have otherwise been wasting in driving, walking and so on just to get money through.

Mobile Money is just getting better by the day though the services you can access depend entirely on which network you are. Currently Zain and MTN have this kind of service with UTL and WARID getting ready to get on board anytime soon.

Zain's Zap service the equivalent of MTN Mobile Money for those on MTN Network has added yet another service onto the Zap service which is ''Pay for your DSTV with Zap". In this day and era, Digital TV is the in thing for most homes and the likes of Multichoice know that very well. That is the very reason they have so many packages ranging from $20 per month which is slightly less than Shs. 40,000/-

Should you get disconnected, it is as simple as getting your phone and selecting Zain from your menu, select Zap, then Money followed by Nickname and type DSTV 164. Enter amount in shillings of course not forgetting your password, Type the first ten digits on your smart card under reference, then send.

The Zap service can be used at selected supermarkets, Total petrol stations for fuel, accessing your bank account and now paying for your DSTV subscription. All this is possible for those on former Celtel and now Zain network.

The Zain/Multichoice partnership kicked off in Kenya last year and it is now in Uganda.
